Scott Jerome, MPT, CPSI

Scott Jerome, MPT, CPSI, started his physical therapy career at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City in 2000 providing outpatient therapy. He then worked for eight years with the Utah Department of Health, Children with Special Health Care Needs, where he provided evaluations, referrals to appropriate pediatric services and neonatal services in rural communities. He received his master's degree in physical therapy, as well as Utah regional leadership education in neurodevelopmental disabilities from the University of Utah. 

Scott has also been involved with the osteogenesis imperfecta population for 15 years, both at Shriners Hospitals for Children and Children with Special Health Care Needs.

Scott appreciates a child’s mobility needs in order to achieve developmental progress such as exploring, manipulating their surrounding world and defeating the effects of learned helplessness and the loss of interest of mobility. The seating and mobility program allows Scott to be an integral part of educating and helping families with their child’s development. He is thrilled to witness the family’s reaction to the moment when their child achieves greater mobility, allowing for independence and development.

Scott has had the opportunity to be involved in developing a special needs car seat clinic and the team of healthcare professionals to assist families in safely transporting their children with special health care needs, which started in 2016.

It is a pleasure for Scott to treat the whole child and provide the patient’s family with the tools needed to best meet their child’s therapy needs. Scott values taking a team approach with the whole hospital at the patient’s disposal to assist in meeting the child’s goals.

Scott is lucky to be a father to three wonderful boys who keep him and his beautiful wife running in every direction, from one sport to the other. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
